Fire trucks responded the Strathmore Peavey Mart on Monday afternoon at about 12 p.m.

The situation had staff and patrons temporarily evacuated from the building, but it turned out to simply be a malfunction in the garden area of the store.

It’s believed the roof malfunctioned in the garden centre and caused a dry line to pop which triggered the sprinkler system.

As a result, staff at the store contacted the fire department.
